No such luck removing everything except for the RAM and power and I had the cable connected to the onboard graphics.

Layback bear,

I listed my specs of the computer on the first page

@logo897

As what @Layback asked is the original hardware, BEFORE these started to happen.

From the original hardware, then we could understand and assist you properly.


Edit:
Now, we are only trying to guess.

Specs in first post won't do the job quite as well.

We would like to have the specs in (My System Specs)
Lower left corner of ever post. So we can see them without look through a bunch of post every time we check your thread for new post.
Doing it this way would be helpfull

My pleasure.

Are there any ways the PC can be fixed, or is it toast?

If my pc is toast, I rather update my system specs to the computers that are currently working for me. I'll gladly leave the pc specs up there until I get the message that it's done for good, or if I fix it I'll keep it and just add my 2 other pc's.

Thanks.

To start off, your video card requires a minimum 400W power supply.
I would recommend 550W or more of a quality power supply.
What Windows 7 are you using. Please put it in your system specs. Also 32 or 64 bit.

Are the bent pins near the power button connection?
Are the bent pins still bent?
Do you have the manual for the motherboard?

**Exactly what ram do you have installed and in what slots on the motherboard?

As usual Intel motherboards are hard to find information or quality pictures.

Bookmark this Intel site it could come in handy.

Port 80h POST Codes for Desktop Boards

----------------------------------

Do you have any thing on your motherboard that looks like what is in the Red squares in the pictures?




Here is some pdf's from Intel.
Pick the one you want or need.

Hello,

I have now updated my system specs.

There are bent pins near the power connection, yes.

No, I do not have a manual for the motherboard.

I have also tested the computer with my 600 watt power supply and no such luck.

I just tried to use AMT reset and yet again no luck. There was no display.
